  • FunctionPlays fundamental roles in nuclear assembly, chromatin organization, gene expression and gonad development. May potently compress chromatin structure and be involved in membrane recruitment and chromatin decondensation during nuclear assembly. Contains 2 non-specific dsDNA-binding sites which may promote DNA cross-bridging. Exploited by retroviruses for inhibiting self-destructing autointegration of retroviral DNA, thereby promoting integration of viral DNA into the host chromosome. EMD and BAF are cooperative cofactors of HIV-1 infection. Association of EMD with the viral DNA requires the presence of BAF and viral integrase. The association of viral DNA with chromatin requires the presence of BAF and EMD.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Expressed in colon, brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, ovary, pancreas, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, small intestine, spleen and testis. Not detected in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the BAF family.
  • DomainHas a helix-hairpin-helix (HhH) structural motif conserved among proteins that bind non-specifically to DNA.
    LEM domain proteins bind centrally on the BAF dimer, whereas DNA binds to the left and right sides.
  • Post-translational
    Partially phosphorylated on serine. Ser-4 phosphorylation may block BAF ability to promote EMD binding to lamins in vitro. Non phosphorylated BAF seems to enhances binding between EMD and LMNA.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. Chromosome. Significantly enriched at the nuclear inner membrane, diffusely throughout the nucleus during interphase and concentrated at the chromosomes during the M-phase. May be included in HIV-1 virions via its interaction with viral GAG polyprotein.
